Nokia’s Nuage Networks VSP solution will be deployed by Bharti Airtel in 15 circles in the northern and southern part of the country to automate its data center networks.
Once deployed, the Nuage Networks VSP solution will allow Airtel to provide new and exciting services, including Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), ensuring customer delight.
Nuage Networks VSP is the critical component in Nokia’s end-to-end Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution that enables automation across the data center and transport networks. It helps by adding agility and flexibility to networks, making them more responsive.
Randeep Sekhon, CTO, Bharti Airtel said, “The upcoming technologies, including 5G and IoT, demand that we move the data centers closer to our customers, so we are able to provide ultra-high speeds and extremely low latency. This is crucial for a number of new-age use cases such as virtual reality (VR), autonomous driving and remote surgery. We are confident that this partnership with Nokia will allow us to upgrade our data center and will enable us to continue to provide the best-in-class services to our subscribers.”
Sanjay Malik, Head of India Market at Nokia said, “Bharti Airtel is our longstanding partner and we are thrilled to support them in this endeavor to automate their data center network. Nokia’s Nuage Networks products and solutions have emerged as a clear leader in helping service providers in their journey to leverage virtualization and SDN for better operational efficiency and quality of experience. It promotes an open ecosystem which enables multi-vendor deployment and allows seamless integration with the deployed infrastructure at massive scale.”
